A local here mounted a P body boost gauge into the driver's right side air vent on his Rampage. You have to modify it slightly, but it looks almost stock once it's in. I don't know if there's a picture on this forum or not. Try searching for rare_ram.
I've also seen an L-body with gauges mounted in the dash all the way to the passenger door. Of course if you want to keep your dash intact then that probably isn't the best approach.
Just finished it today. Popped out vent, mounted gauge bracket inside. You don't have any visible holes to worry about, just dissasemble and pop vent back in, no one will ever know (except for everyone here that is).
I did the same as #10 (glhs592's) , I used a small piece of aluminum, polished it and put a silver faced gauge in .....will try to post a pic, but I have in my old GLH-t there is a radio bezel with no vents on each side of the radio, the come blocked. They are perfect for fast cauge mounting, just the angle sucks a little.....
sorry about the above post without the picture, I just learned how to post pics. This is my dash, it uses VDO gauges because the needles light up and they don't crap up the look of the gauges with their logo, its done tastefully. bullet LEDs are tied into the stock harness for the idiot lights, highbeam, check engine and turnsignals. The green square is a Gadget seller voltmeter for the O2 sensor, it works real well
^man i love that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
im planning on dilling mine into the center face of the dash (right above where the radio would be) and angling them toward me a bit. i sapose i could put them in the radios spot as i took mine out, but i like the dash idea cause it not as far to look when you have the pedal to the floor. i think theres about 2" behind the dash right there befre any ducting or wires.
thanks, on my old Omni I did a dashpad overlay out of 1/4" plywood and covered it in matching vinyl, it looked good and the flat dash was handy throwing burgers up on it. I hope Stargazer doesn't mind me pirating his photo to show you the concept
